Firstly if you’re new to the site my last 4 seasons overall ranks are 17k, 36k, 17k and 21k.
GW2 points: 51 (FPL average 59) Total points 119, Overall Rank: 1,861k, red arrow: 877k Team Value: £99.8m
Here’s the points:
You’d think 5 returning players wouldn’t be a disaster but the Son’s, Calvert Lewin’s, Kane’s and Rodriguez’s caused the damage round the edges.
I reviewed GW2 in my early thoughts on the FFGeek team article so I won’t go into detail here. It’s easy to focus on OR at the moment but the reality is that it isn’t representative. 50k overall rank is only 46 points away. Some managers made 41 points in 1 gameweek from Calvert Lewin and Son alone so I’m not worried as yet.
1 free transfer and £0.00 in the bank.
The transfer I’m going to do is the one I was always planning and that’s Aubameyang out and De Bruyne in. It’s a pretty popular transfer and with good reason. He did have an injury scare midweek but apparently kept on playing. Pep obviously didn’t mention it today which means nothing obviously but I’m going to do it anyway.
So the transfer is Aubameyang out and De Bruyne in
The FFGeek Captain poll has them pretty close as options. I’m personally going for Werner as the opposition WBA just seem totally hopeless defensively.
Nothing controversial here. Even if Saliba was playing it’s v Liverpool so he goes to the back of the bench with Reed beside him. Ive gone for Ward Prowse at Burnley over Soucek at home to Wolves
Bookies odds for the matches
Here’s the clean sheet and anytime goalscorer odds for the team this week. The average is £2.63 which is far better than last weeks £3.15. Whether that pans out that way we’ll have to see.
I’ve also included the player classifications which you can get from the early FFGeek team article if you’re not familiar
Here’s the team
Good luck everyone!
